I have this friend named Juliette.
We met through the internet.
I’ve met some of my favorite friends through the internet. Here is a sampling.
Whoa. If it’s possible to meet such attractive women through the internet, could I meet attractive guys? Why have I not signed up for eHarmony?
Anyway, this story is not about them.
It’s about her.
Juliette lives here in Nashville – well, Franklin, to be exact.
Franklin is where I did this.
(I know, it always has to be about me.)
BACK to her.
She’s wonderful. In my year and a half in Nashville, we’ve only hung out a handful of times, but she’s one of those people that you kind of wish you could hate but you can’t help but love – because she’s all these fabulous things like beautiful and creative and hilarious and talented and kind and really smart.
She makes this look cool.
The week that I lost my job, she treated me to wine & cheese at Rumours.
IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, that is the way to my heart. That, and foot rubs. And men with good scruff. (Clarification: Juliette did not give me a foot rub, nor does she have scruff.)
But guess who does?
HER NEW FIANCE, TODD!!!!!!!
The girl is engaged.
And I am so, so excited for her. She deserves the best guy ever. And it sounds like Todd is.
(If you’re wondering what Joey looks like, well. He no longer believes in Facebook. Probably because internet strangers like me would go in and steal his pictures and post them on their blog.
But I have it on good authority that he looks exactly like this guy.)
I know Val, Dani, and Joey through the internet, too – although I’ve never met them. They’re some of Juliette’s best friends. I hope they will adopt me.
Sometimes, against all odds, people find each other. WE find each other. Congratulations, Julie-girl and Todd – and thanks to all of you internet people who have turned out to be awesome in real life, too.
